> In FileSystem, there is a cache maintained for Filesystem instances. The entries in the
cache are cleared only when explicit FileSystem.close is invoked. Applications are not careful
on this aspect. Typically, they do FileSystem.get(), operate on the FileSystem, and then they
just forget about it. Every FileSystem instance stores a reference to the Configuration object
that it was created with. Over a period of time, as the cache grows, this can lead to OOM
(we have seen this happening in our hadoop 20S clusters at Yahoo).
> This jira aims at addressing the above issue.
